Introduction: These days the environment had been affected in many ways. Humans have a huge impact on environment. Farming is one of the negative effects on the environment, especially the modern ways of farming and raising animals; this modern way is called factory farming . The environmental impact depends on the production practices of the system used by farmers. The environmental impact of agriculture involves a variety of factors from the soil, to water, the air, animal and soil diversity, people, plants, and the food itself.
Impacts: Animal Agriculture Animal agriculture is something that this world depends on in order to continue human survival. Humans use animals for all sorts of different products around the world. But is it hurting the environment past revival? As many of us know, the use of animals on a factory level is very damaging to the environment. Fecal matter from these farms are often times leached into rivers and are also creating methane gas which helps contribute to global warming.
It starts with the first stages of material sourcing whether it be mining or manufacturing of raw materials, which can have detrimental effects on the local environment and its eco-system, putting bio-diversity of some plant and animal species at risk. Transportation of these resources around the globe, to site, or to be further processed can produce substantial greenhouse gas emissions. Furthermore, the waste that requires disposal and removal from the construction site also adds to the carbon footprint (ESUB Construction Software,
Overall global warming will impact life on earth in many ways but the extent of the change is largely dependent on human activities as scientist have shown that human emissions of greenhouse gases are pushing global temperatures up. It can therefore be concluded that climate change is the long-term averages and variations in the weather over a long period of time were as anthropogenic climate change relates to the effects human activities have on the greenhouse gases and as the greenhouse gases are long-lived, therefore the planet will continue to warm and changes will happen in the future, but the degree to which global warming changes is up to the human activities affecting climate
Climate change otherwise known as global warming has been an ongoing issue for decades. Beginning in the 19th century, climate change has increasingly affected Earth and its atmosphere. Rising levels of carbon dioxide are warming the Earth’s atmosphere causing rising sea-levels, melting snow and ice, extreme fires and droughts, and intense rainfall and floods. Climate change has and will continue to affect food production, availability of water, and can add to many health risks in humans and animals. In fact, in an article by Justin Gillis titled, “Scientists Warn of Perilous Climate Shift Within Decades, Not Centuries” he focuses on a paper written by former NASA climate scientist, James E. Hansen, explaining the effects of climate change
This is changing the natural systems that take place in our atmosphere. When all these extra gases are released, carbon dioxide stars to accumulate in the atmosphere. Climate change is a global issue because when the temperature of the Earth changes even very slightly, it can cause droughts and our crops can die. This is affecting our food supply. Also, when water levels rise even slightly, it can be very destructive for
Within the past year, several violent hurricanes have swept through the United States’ coastlines. Hurricanes are becoming increasingly larger in size and strength over the past one-hundred years. Why is this happening? These monstrous storms occur due to burgeoning amounts of carbon dioxide being trapped in the Earth’s atmosphere; what scientists refer to as climate change. Climate change has caused the Earth’s average temperatures to rise over the past several years.
The level of carbon dioxide has been increased in the upper part of the atmosphere which it leads to increase the average temperature on the surface which it causes many problems in many side of life including nature, health and economy. Increasing the concentration of carbon dioxide is due to release of poison gases to the atmosphere by cars, manufactures, oil field, burning of natural gases and smoking. Air pollution and climate change are a result of increasing the level of carbon dioxide around the world. Researches show that the average temperature of the planet has been changed during the last decades, as a result, many problems join with it and climate change is considered as the biggest problem around the world. Climate change is one of the results of global warming and it has so many negative disadvantage impacts on earth, including; increasing the events of natural
